is no doubt the "sit" command, and its extension the "sit-stay,"
is probably the most useful skill you can teach your dog. Whether you
are waiting at a crowded corner traffic light or are entertaining a visitor
leery of dogs, you will thank yourself, and your dog, for taking the time
to master it. Even the young puppy will be eager to "work" if
the reward is tempting enough.
Finally, once your dog is successful at waiting for the treat, begin to take a single step to one side and back, followed by a reward. If your dog moves, you have probably asked him to do too much, too soon. Back up in your training program to a very short stay. The key to successful training is patience and a positive attitude. Scolding and physical force will only turn your dog off to the fun of these exercises. Short sessions once or twice daily, at times when your dog is enthusiastic and attentive, will soon have him sitting like the pros.
